Dolly Travels – Being Lazy in the Dolomites
I simply must write. Today is our last full day in Castelrotto. I want to stay longer, but I do have to get back to Florence. We have had a lovely stay here in the Dolomites. I have been having trouble adjusting to the altitude (I hate to think that my lack of stamina has anything to do with eating too much or partaking of too much of the local, delicious wines and beers! So I will blame it on the altitude.)
I love being here, and as much as the weather would permit, I wanted to be out in the fresh air and the mountains. Therefore, I decided I should only do down hill walks. That is not so difficult. Yesterday, I took a chairlift up to Panorama station, then walked down to Compatsch. That was about 45 minute walk. The view from Panorama was outstanding. By standing near the end of the chairlift, I had a 360 degree view of the mountains around me.
This northern part of Italy is actually pretty narrow, so therefore, Switzerland is not so very far away. The Swiss Alps link up with the Dolomites.
